It looks like The Boys television universe is expanding. Amazon Prime recently announced that the show is getting an eight-episode animated spin-off series dubbed Diabolical.
The upcoming show was confirmed by The Boys actor Karl Urban during one of Amazon Prime Video’s Comic-Con Experience 2021 virtual panels.
“There is no question that you guys are the greatest fans in the world,” Urban said in the video. “As a special way of saying thank you to you, we’ve got a little surprise for you which is going to drop early next year… [Producers Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg] have asked a few of their celebrity mates to cook up eight deliciously unique, twisted, animated episodes set in the world of The Boys.”
Diabolical will feature untold stories in the world of The Boys penned by top writers across the entertainment industry. Upcoming episodes feature stories written by Awkwafina, Garth Ennis, Eliot and Ilana Glazer, Simon Racioppa, Justin Roiland, and Ben Bayouth, Andy Samberg, and Aisha Tyler. Rogen and Goldberg also serve as writers.
“Surprise! We’re almost finished with eight episodes of our animated series, Diabolical,” executive producer Eric Kripke said in a statement. “We gathered together some incredible creators and we gave them one rule… just kidding, there’s no rules. They blew the doors off it, delivering eight completely unexpected, funny, shocking, gory, moist, emotional episodes. You think The Boys is nuts? Wait till you see this.”
To add to this exciting new animated show, another live-action spin-off of The Boys set at superhero college was previously announced. Plus, season three of The Boys is in the works. This means fans will get even more awesome content real soon. Diabolical is slated for release on Amazon Prime this 2022.
